Republicans have put their self interests and that of their lobbyists front and center, never mind that they were elected, sent to both the House and Senate to represent the interests and will of the people that elected them, as well as the interests of all Americans. After all, no party or affiliation lives on a bubble, what they do for one, will affect the others.
25th Amendment to the United States Constitution
But Republicans, Irrespective of the facts that Polls after Polls on important issues that affect the vast majority of American have been highlighted, amplified, brought forth, for they to take the necessary steps toward resolving such or at the very least start addressing those issues, things most Americans agree on, had turned a blind eye, gone “dormant” instead aiding and abating offenses that could render Trump, impeachable.
They took an Oath to Protect and uphold the Constitution of the United State, (that means you and the country you live in), most everything that affect you in a Constitutional Basis, and that may affect you currently and into the future.
They have basically thus far managed to trampled on the Oath they took upon taking office, to Protect and uphold the Constitution of the United State.
Take a look:
The Oath to Uphold the Constitution Article VI clause 3 of the United States Constitution requires that all who hold office in the United States take an oath to uphold the United States Constitution:
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution…”
In compliance with this requirement, as they enter office, Members of Congress take the following oath of office:
“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
Article II Section 1 of the United States Constitution defines and requires the President of the United States to take a specific oath as he assumes that office:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (United States Constitution Article II, Section 1, emphasis added). So help me God.
*According to Scott Bradley. An oath is defined in Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary as: “A solemn affirmation or declaration, made with an appeal to God for the truth of what is affirmed. The appeal to God in an oath, implies that the person imprecates his vengeance and renounces his favor if the declaration is false, or if the declaration is a promise, the person invokes the vengeance of God if he should fail to fulfill it. A false oath is called perjury.”
*Bradley was the Constitution Party nominee for Vice President of the United States in the 2016 election, sharing the ticket with Darrell Castle. Wikipedia
So far Trump has fail to live up to his obligations to “Protect”, giving the Russians a pass at every turn (only recently taking some actions against the Russians) well into his presidency while criticizing alienating those that could help him achieve his goals of “Protecting” this country, US allies.
But, You should pay particular attention to that part of the Oath “So help me God”, and on the definition: “the vengeance of God if he should fail to fulfill it”.
DID TRUMP GET THE MEMO? WHAT’S A DREAMER ANYWAY? DREAMERS, an It, a Thing, ET, how about Pawns? Everyone talks about DREAMERS (3.6 Millions).
So what are Dreamers, about DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program -800,000 Thousand), just words, and numbers? The fact is that these are “Families”, Children, and real lives, with real hopes (most Dreamers are in school, educated and or have jobs), not just Words or Numbers or an it, and even though many are “Undocumented Aliens”, they are Not, I repeat, Not, from Outer Space.
Getting back to reality, this Congress and Trump can resolved the Immigration issue if they just stop treating it as an “It” or “Bargaining Ship” and concentrate on the fact that these are Real People-Real Families.
Trump tried to blame Democrats and Barack Obama for “the DACA problem”, However, Obama created the program through executive order after Republicans refused to put a clean bill on the floor of either chamber.
Then along came Trump and created “the DACA problem”, by voiding the program. Safeguards can be put in place so that We are not here again rocking a sinking rotting boat taking on water and with no-Life Savers or Life Jackets. And Kicking the can down the road is no longer possible, for there’s no more Road left.
It has been done so much for so many years that by now the bottom of Legislation shoes probably has no sole! Not that they have any Soul. See what I did there…Sole, Soul! So will Dreamers Dream, ever come through?
Before answering take a Moment, envision what our Fathers, their Fathers and their Fathers “Fathers” and forefathers had to endure when coming into a New, Unknown Land, full of Uncertainties with just a gleam of hope, in Search of a Better Life. Our Existence and Prosperity is owed entirely and directly to the Strength of their Character and Sacrifices, their willingness for a Brighter Future (If hasn’t been for them, we would of not had been here), Does it sound familiar?
SO HOW MANY STRONGLY SUPPORT DREAMERS TO STAY: 73% (Monmouth University Poll-Jan. 28-2018) 70% (CBS Poll-January 2018). 86% (ABC News/Washington Poll-Sept. 18-21-2017) 73% Trump’s Voters (CBS Poll-January 2018) 76% Republicans (ABC News/Washington Poll-Sept. 18-21-2017) It does not matter which poll you use, the fact remains that the majority of Americans Supports the Dreamers to Stay.
Trump and the Legislation should Resolved these issues once and for all for Lives are being uprooted, families Destroyed with each day that goes by without a solution. Doing anything less than to help those in the same position as our Fathers and Forefathers were, not long ago, is to “Deny” the Fact that we are the Product of, and, on the Land of Immigrants. Let’s Hope, Trump got the MEMO! Share, Comment, Blog Below!
FOR SALE; TRUMP-SENATE-HOUSE REPUBLICANS! (Ralphy V.)
Do we have a Gun Problem? Does Trump blaming Democrats and Barack Obama for gun control legislation holds water? Let’s find out.
Democrats tried to enact various types of legislation, only to be filibustered or outright blocked by Republicans each time. Trump Repealed Obama-Era rule to prevent 75,000 mentally ill people from being able to purchase a gun. But it’s the Narrative of choice and the one Trump and majority of Republicans use after each shooting. “Bump stocks”, which helped the Las Vegas shooter hit over 500 people in 10 minutes, and turned a semi-automatic weapon into an automatic, still remain perfectly legal. Each time there is a Mass Shooting Republicans respond with: Heartfelt Condolences and… Just as fast, go back to their narrative of; it is Too Early to talk Gun Control.
Did you see a pattern? Republicans have shown No empathy let along concern for the children of your community with their blocking, delaying tactics (hoping you will forget soon after Mass Shootings occur), diluting and just simply ignoring calls for any Gun Legislation, all the while swelling their pockets and reaping Millions for their re election coffers from the Gun Lobby.
Sandy Hook: 20 Elementary School Children will never get to grow up and see the light of day. Columbine: 12 students will never experience Life. That Mass Shooting happened back in April 20 1999, too early to talk Gun Control? According to: Center for Responsive Politics
NRA, spent over $30 Millions so Trump would get elected. Trump has spoken glowingly to and about the NRA.
The biggest recipients of NRA (in Millions): $7,740,521 – JOHN McCAIN – Senate $6.99M – RICHARD BURR (R-NC) Senate $4,551,146 ROY BLUNT (R-MO) Senate $4,418,012 TOM TILLIS (R-NC) Senate $3.3M – MARCO RUBIO (R-FL) Senate, an A + From NRA to Marco Rubio – friendly legislative position. $3,124,273 – JONNI ERNST (R-IA) Senate $3,879,064 – CORY GARDNER (R-CO) Senate $3,061,941 – ROB PORTMAN (R-OH) Senate $2,896,732 – TOD YOUNG (R-IN) Senate $2,861,047 – BILL CASSIDY (R-LA) Senate $9,900 – CHUCK GRASSLEY (R-IA) Senate $9,900 – BRUCE POLIQUIN (R-ME) House $3,00 – DEVIN NUNES (R-CA) House Source: Center for Responsive Politics.
Among the top 100 House recipients of the NRA, 95 are Republican (New York Times-Opinion- Center for Responsive Politics). Dollar figures are career totals going all the way back to 1989.
In a nutshell Trump and majority of Senate and House Republicans have been bought and paid for by the NRA so they owe the NRA Big, your children… Not so Much! So next time you hear that it’s too early for “Gun Control”, maybe Republicans should listen to the voices of the Next Generation of Voters (in three-four years):
“They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS! They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. We call BS! They say guns are just tools like knives and are as dangerous as cars. We call BS!” (Emma GonzaleZ)
America Have a Gun Problem, it’s called Trump-Republicans,the Republican Party. Easily solved next Elections, that will be, what make the difference if change is to happen! Share, , Tweet, Comment, Leave a Reply-Blog-Post!
TRUM-PETING SOURCE and METHODS! Can You Say HYPOCRITES? (Ralphy V.)
Trump Okayed the release of the Nunes memo back on 2018. After promising that the Democratic memo would be released “soon,” then, rescinded his decision to release the Democratic memo, on concerns raised by the FBI and Justice Department sending it it back to the Intelligence Committee for revisions.
According to Trump, The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, Tweeted Donald Trump on 8:20 AM – Feb 10, 2018. Source and Methods?
Let’s recap for a moment; The president’s vetoing of the Democratic memo was a total about face to his giddy enthusiastic embrace on releasing the Republican Memo, which accuses of all things, his own FBI and Justice Department of abusing their surveillance powers in obtaining a secret warrant to monitor former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, completely unrelated, totally debunked, and still part of a Classified on-going Investigation.
FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to released it.
Trumps own FBI and Justice Department urged the President not to release the Nunes memo, citing “Grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy. Trump released the memo anyway.
Trump was overheard telling Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-South Carolina, at the State of the Union that the Nunes memo would be released, never mind that the White House counsel and the national security team were still reviewing it.
Trump has made up his mind to release the Nunes memo regardless of what the FBI and Justice Department, or cousin’s Cockatiel; “Hypocrites – Hypocrites”, for that matter might of had been yelling. Trump believed it was good for him politically and he was Not to be Denied.
Now he’s hiding behind the same FBI and Justice Department he ignored a week ago in order to slow, or stop the release of a memo that rebuts his story.
Politicizing and Weaponizing intelligence information is unprecedented regardless of who is Doing, the Doing. Trump, Nunes and all those Republicans aiding and abating these efforts do not seem to care about Source and Methods, let along Protecting National Security.
The very fact that Nunes’ memo was written and released tells a lot as to how far they are willing to go, ignoring National Security and the Rule of Law. But to keep a competing memo meant to shed light on the Truth, from being released, citing the very people whose recommendation you ignored a week before is, to put it mildly, shear Hypocrisy and – Treasonous!

When you talk about a True Adversary of the US it does not get much worse than Russia which is constantly probing for weaknesses, trying to undermine and sabotage Democracy around the world. Knowing these facts you would think that we would be more careful and apply if anything common sense as to who is let in the door and under what circumstances but we have a President that is supposed to be sanctioning this kind of behavior and yet he is Sleeping with the Enemy, under Russian Collusion Investigation.
You do not have to go too far to ascertain this fact. Just looking at Trump’s behavior in meeting at the Oval Office with Sergey I. Kislyak: Ambassador to the United States believe to be a Top Spy and Recruiter of Spies and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, you have to wonder is Trump more than just a Russian sympathizer? Could he be a Mole?
Trump cozy affection for the Russians, never wanting to hold the Russians accountable for meddling in our Democratic Elections even after this has been established as fact by Multiple National Security Agencies is not only odd to say the least but unprecedented of a President, simply not Normal.
What’s even more concerning and extremely alarming is the way the Republicans have responded to Trump possible Impeachable behavior toward the Investigation into Russian Interference and his Administration and Associates a cause for Collusion and Treasonous Offenses and when all is put into context should had raise alarms to the highest levels with sanctions to follow, Sanctions that even after establishing the fact that Russia was found to have meddled in our Elections do not seem to be forthcoming anytime soon.
With all of the current Investigations and Drip, Drips you’d have to conclude that there’s definitely some type of Collusion, Ethic or Emoluments Clause Violations or Conflict of Interests by Trump and his Administration and Associates, let’s re-cap:
Secret Meeting at Oval Office with Russian Officials away from the Prying Eyes of the US Press with only Russian Press Present, they were laughing it out judging by the photos released by the Russian Press. Were they Laughing at the American People? That’s you and me buddy.
There are at least six Investigations currently on going by The House, Congress the FBI aside by Robert Mueller supposedly Independent Investigation which is Not Truly Independent as they may want you to believe.
Trump constantly trying to detract from Investigations with “New Revelations” of “Falsehoods” and “Accusations”.
The Firing of FBI Director James Comey the Investigator, conducting Investigation.
Firing back at Comey on a Tweet stating there better be no tapes of (Trump and Comey) conversations while dinning together, a clear fish expedition by Trump whom most likely did not know if there was and was just Trying to found out if one existed, a threat, a Criminal Offense.
Trump Surrogates-Minions like Devin Nunes of The House Intelligence Committee who has gone Rogue and is at it again, this time issuing 5-6 subpoenas unmasking requests to US spy agencies related to Russia’s election meddling between June 2016-January 2017, the Washington Post reported on Friday, in an effort to identify which US persons foreign agents are speaking to or about, trying to divert attention away from the investigation” into Trump’s campaign, a Violation” of Nunes’ recusal from the investigation
Trump romancing of Michael Flynn Forced to resign as National Security Adviser, but still keeping in “Touch” with him until Flynn realized that he was better off parting ways. Ask yourselves, what does Flynn has on Trump that Trump still wanted Flynn back into his bosom? Keep in mind that when there is an Investigation of this magnitude the farther away from that person being investigated the better you’ll be.
And then there’s; Rex Tillerson-Secretary of State with close links to Russia-Russian interests in the past and possibly current, stand to gain if sanctions are lifted on Russia,
Jeff Sessions-attorney general whom admitted to two previous conversations with Mr. Kislyak under Oath “Perjuring” himself after stating that he did not, “Recused” himself on any Russia Investigation but was Instrumental on the Firing of James Comey investigating Collusion?
Paul Manafort, former Trump Campaign Manager, Collusion Role is being Expanded by Investigation exponentially.
Carter Page, an earlier Foreign Policy Adviser to Donald Trump suspected of Private Communications with Russian Officials over the summer.
Roger Stone, off and on GOP Operative, Trump Political Adviser provided Wikileaks with the DNC files during the presidential campaign in an effort to sway the elections.
Donald Trump Jr. (on October 2007), Jr. tells a Real Estate conference, “Russians makes up a Disproportionate Cross-section of a Lot of Our Assets…We See a Lot of Money Pouring in from Russia.
Jared Kushner, Trump’s son in law and Advicer, met with Mr. Kislyak in “Private”, according to reports trying to set up a “Back Channel” with the Russians away from the prying Eyes and Ears of the FBI and CIA, was he trying to become a Russian “Mole”, or was it all just self enrichment?
When you put it all into context you can’t but conclude that there indeed is a there, there. That some kind of Violation, Collusion, Crime has been committed, where some of these folks trying to become Russian Moles or just trying to conveniently fill up their pockets taken advantage of the situation at hand?
Judging by Republican non existing response or lack of outrage to all of these issues, events and Individuals, possibly colluding and breaking the law, the fact that all investigations are ran by Republicans in Both the House and Senate who’s to say that they might not try to Dilute, Undermine, Compromise and at the very end of such Investigations just “Puff” away any Crime and Collusion that may had been committed?
Which is More of a reason as to why an Outside Commission Investigation should’ve taken place to take Partisan Politics Out of the Equation and come to a Rightful and Fair conclusion of any findings of Russian Collusion Investigation and any other violation committed by Trump, his Administration and Associates, who knows, it may even reveal, “Moles” in the House, it’s Clouding Pretty Quick in the Red House.

PSCHHH! WANT SOME SECRETS? CHEAP! There are an incredible amount of White House staffers still lacking “Permanent Security Clearances”, even though many handle Classified Information in the White House, “Highly Classified, National Security Sensitive Information”… up for Grabs! Want a Job? Sergey Kislyak may beat you to it so best hurry. Share, Comment, Blog below!
ARTICLE: What Irks America! – USEFUL IDIOTS! John Kelly on Porter: He’s a man of full integrity. The day after… “Mum”, was the word! Trump and Kelly completely ignored Porter domestic abuse allegation-problems on his background check given to them as information became available, at least three times since “March 2017” with a rundown of the spousal abuse allegations the FBI had uncovered against Mr. Porter.
In “November”, the Bureau provided the White House with additional information about the allegations. Porter’s temporary clearance should not have allowed him to view Highly Secret-Sensitive Documents otherwise needed to keep documents flowing onto Trump’s desk, accumulating more and more responsibilities even though high-level officials knew about his former partners’ allegations.
The White House revised its version of events after testimony on Capitol Hill from the F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, contradicted earlier shifting claims from the West Wing and has been spinning different versions as to when they knew about Porter’s allegations even though they knew for several months.
You have to ask yourself why the White House allowed Porter to handle highly classified information as Porter’s temporary clearance should not, have allowed him access to “top-secret” material however, it all went KABOOM, on a series of articles by the Daily Mail and The Intercept that revealed that Porter had punched, kicked, and choked Holderness over the course of their marriage.
As White House staff secretary, Porter was simply one of the most powerful men in the Trump’s administration, overseeing the flow of information that ended up on Trump’s desk; furthermore, media reports confirm that Porter was Chief of Staff John Kelly Right Hand Man and yet, he only had an interim security clearance, Never Mind that an Interim position is only supposed to last for 90 to 190 Days, Tops.
Currently there were an incredible 130 White House staffers at that time still lacking “Permanent Security Clearances”, even though many handle classified information, yet, Gen. Kelly still had a job, as chief of staff?
Boondoggles like these are what the Russians call “KOMPROMAT”, or “Useful Idiots”, people on key positions without Proper Clearance that can be easily Manipulated, Compromised, when they have questionable backgrounds that lends to Black Mail.
NATIONAL SECURITY, WHAT NATIONAL SECURITY? There’s Highly Classified Info in the White House up for Grabs and a Bunch of Useful Idiots, you are welcome to it. Share, Comment, Blog!
